I am gratified when readers send me their opinions about things I write or add important information.  Bea Wray, a real estate agent who lives in Haig Point on Daufuskie Island, wrote the following about the article immediately below.  I am happy to put any of our readers in touch with Bea.


    I built our house for $210 per square foot.  Several wonderful builders have their own bunk houses on the island, so crews spend the week here, appreciate the steady work, and put out a full day.  Of course, this drives costs down. [Editor's note:  And speaking of driving costs, they are almost non-existent since no cars are permitted on the island; everyone uses golf carts.]   

    Plus, since the community already has over 250 residents, there is a staff of bellmen, luggage carts, trailers, etc. in place for very easy delivery to your door.  So, whether I order items for my home, groceries, even a late night sump pump, the cost is dramatically less than it would be if I lived in nearby Sea Pines on Hilton Head.

This blog was conceived and is published by me, Larry Gavrich, a former corporate communications executive who founded HomeOnTheCourse, LLC, in 2005.  Our firm advises baby boomers and others seeking a lifestyle in which golf is a major component.  My wife Connie and I own a home in Connecticut (not on a golf course) and a condo at Pawleys Plantation in Pawleys Island, SC, on a Jack Nicklaus layout.  We began our search for our home on the course more than 15 years ago, and the challenges of the search inspired me to research golf communities and write objective reviews of them.
